La Petite École is the only French-English Preschool and Kindergarten in Portland.

La Petite École offers a unique bilingual art based full day program. No French is necessary to begin! In a nurturing environment, we develop an academic foundation through an arts- and environmentally-based approach.

We offer a multicultural experience through hands on creative activities and explorations of the environment, and get to know each child and his or her needs. Our unique program focuses on early developmental awakening through song, play, visual arts, movement, music, yoga and experiments in the natural world. These fun and enriching experiences serve the development of the whole child, and awaken a motivation for learning and interacting.

La Petite Ecole is a full day program to engage your child in this unique Bilingual Art-venture! We visit the Portland Public library, the Portland Museum of Art, the seasonal Public Market and the MECA library to inspire art projects and help develop age-appropriate skills including social, cognitive, communication, and motor skills.

Our warm and caring teachers make La Petite Ecole the special place it is!

We are dedicated to each child who joins La Petite Ecole, and develop a close community.
